Minestra Alla Casalinga

Minestra is a thick broth, very much like hotch-potch, only thicker. In Italy it is often served at the beginning of dinner instead of soup; it also makes an excellent lunch dish.

Ingredients

Butter
Stock
Vegetables


Method

All sorts of vegetables will serve for this dish. Blanch them in boiling salted water, then drain and fry them in butter. Add plenty of good stock and put them on a slow fire. Boil four ounces of rice in stock, when it is well done add the stock with the vegetables. Serve with grated cheese handed separately.
